23andMe in Second Life

This morning 23andMe bravely went were no other personal genome service has gone before — Second Life!

Bertalan Mesko of scienceroll.com kindly arranged for us (ErinC and joyce) to give a presentation about our company on Second Nature, an island operated in Second Life by the Nature Publishing Group. We talked about the basics of our service, and our newest addition — 23andWe.

It was a great — if somewhat weird — experience. Neither of us has ever given a talk where a horned blue monster and a robot made out of boxes were in attendance!

Thanks to everyone who came to watch!

If you missed it, Bertalan live-blogged our presentation. Our poster will also remain on Second Nature if you want to check it out.
